My ice cream guys are in the current issue of Stuffed Magazine. I just got mine in the mail the other day. They hit stores January 1st. I really love how they staged the photo. They look so cute and edible! Some of these guys are also in the Luv-able & Hug-able show going on right now.There is still one more ice cream guy in my Etsy store. Click image to see larger.


Here is the cover of Stuffed Volume 3. My local Borders has carried all the past issues.


We finished the stove and sink last night. We are thrilled at how it turned out. Neither one of us are wood workers by any means and to have put this together ourselves feels really good. We hit a few snags along the way but nothing major. We have enough MDF left that we may make a small fridge. Maybe for her birthday. It would be nice extra storage. I'm afraid all the food and stuff I've made and bought isn't all going to fit in the stove.

Decided on three shelves instead of the original four.

Found this rack at Lowes. Thought it would be great as added storage. We also added a rack in the oven along with a push light.

The only thing left to do is paint a V in the circle on the back splash.

We stayed almost exact to the original sketch I did about 3 months ago.

Hot pink with black and white polka dots!


Violet had the first of two of the H1N1 shot yesterday. Didn't shed a tear. Maybe because I was pinching her finger really hard. She got a 'sticky' (sticker) and then because it was still early we got some ice cream.

Violet trying to say cheese and take a drink.

I asked her if her tummy was full and she gave me this pose. Very funny.

Could she be a lefty? Violet seems to favor her left hand but I've seen her draw with her right too. So who knows. She is very much into coloring right now and gets very serious about. Chris traced her hand the other night and now that's all she wants to do. Just about every night this week all she's wanted to do after dinner is color.
